Ideal weight x 10 + 1/2 again + 200 calories for every 1/2 hour exercise.
I think I can do that. I just need to read labels now!
In other news, I'm making more and more of an effort to stop eating meat. Yesterday when I went to the store I didn't buy ANY products with meat in them. I still bought dairy because I *love* milk and cheese. I love meat, too, but I love animals more.
I'm not going to stop eating fish, but I eat it so rarely it's not that big of a deal. I also think that if I must have meat at some point, I'll buy something kosher. One of the standards of kosher food is that the animal must have been killed humanely. Hopefully, I won't need to buy any, though.
When I was at the store, I realized that cutting out meat doesn't limit my options, it actually made me receptive to a whole new spectrum of good food! That was a very good feeling. :)
So, wish me luck, with both the calories and the fledgling vegetarianism!
